The Extravagance of Staircases

It’s true; granite and marble truly make a house look and feel luxurious; whether it’s the ultra modern bathroom countertops or the kitchen island made of marble. These are the finer things in life.

Stairs and staircases are the cherry on top for any homeowner looking to set themselves apart from the rest. A stunningly designed staircase can express your individuality and style. From luxurious to quirky – staircases can easily become a stand out feature of any home if executed fittingly.

Titanic
It is simply impossible to think of a glamorous staircase without the image of the film, Titanic, coming to mind.
Who can forget that scene where Leonardo diCaprio is waiting at the foot of the stairs for Kate Winslet’s arrival?

The real Titanic
Considered to be among the most luxurious appointments on the ship, use of the two ‘grand staircases’ was restricted to first-class passengers.

The fore Grand Staircase descends five levels from the Boat Deck to the E Deck with grand appearance, and continues down to F-Deck as an ordinary stairway.

The staircases featured large glass domes that allowed natural light to enter the spaces, oak panelling and detailed carvings, paintings, bronze cherubs (which served as lamp supports on the middle railings), candelabra, and other details.

Your Titanic
You can have your own ‘grand staircase’ and experience a daily dose of what the exasperatingly wealthy experienced back then.
